Check out my usual face, at work, with no filter! 😛
Today I’m sharing a vlog of my current morning beauty routine! It’s a video that I’ve been wanting to do for the longest time, every morning as I run through the same routine, I imagine how fun it will be to share my experience and tutorial with all of you! So FINALLY here it is! 😀
I didn’t state on the video, I have combination skin; normal with oily T-zone and I’m concerned with enlarged pores on nose and cheeks area. So acne-care, hydration and whitening (lightening of blemishes) is important to me in my skincare. I also take care that all the skincare and make up products I use are non-comodegenic (does not clog pores). I’ve been using this range of products for about a year now. Also, I’m 23 going 24 this year. So skincare products for me have to be affordable as much as it is effective. As for make up, I believe in paying more for good quality foundation, blusher and eyeliner. While lip colour can be bought at cheaper prices (usually they are priced cheaper too) as I usually change my lip colour everyday depending on my mood and what I wear.

Another vlog update… I try to vlog on Sunday or Monday but obviously this one’s late. But I’m not really going to try to keep to it, just going to vlog as and when I like! Now that my MacBook Pro is down, I’ve figured how to vlog and upload on my YouTube (and now blogging about it) all on my trusty iPhone4s! Whoop whoop! 🙂
So I realized I say basically quite a fair bit, I don’t know why. Lol. Gonna cut down on it in the next vlogs.
Umm yes so I could be really upset about my Mac screen going all white on me but I’ve decided not too because its pointless and it also means if it can’t be fixed ill just have to figure a way to get a new one! I just believe that God’s gonna provide for everything and whether I am happy or sad it doesn’t help to restore my Mac so id very much rather be happy! And dinner w my family was really great! So was dinner with Annabel and the movie Whitehouse Down with her. It wasn’t a great movie per se, but definitely a spectacular all action movie. So do check out if you’re a movie buff!

I’m going to upgrade this WordPress blog to my own domain some time very soon! The main reason is because I’m using up almost all of the free space there is in the free account so I’m sorta forced to upgrade to get more space for more photos. Was planning to when I upload all my some 100-200 Philippines trip photos (depending how many I decide to select and share, from a scary amount of 900-1000 photos lollll) and in order to do so I’ve to upgrade. But alas my MacBook Pro crashed. I think ill still upgrade nonetheless via IPhone / or galaxy tab my sister loaned me. It’s gonna be my birthday present to myself! Using my birthday gift allowance from my parents! Ok so it’s sorta my parents gift to me. Hahaha. So I’m gonna be having http://Enabalista.com here soon! Exciting times ahead eh?
Alright that’s a lot of updates for today. Can’t wait to update on the media call for Addam’s family musical tmr! And about what happens to my baby MacBook Pro! HAHA.
I filmed a very short vlog last night, about the make up look I had. It’s been a very long time since I last vlogged and it took me a long time, almost 2 hours to get it right, despite it being a 2.5 min long video. Vlogging makes me exceedingly self-conscious because I personally don’t think I look very good on screen, only at certain angles and filming really accentuates that fact. I really take my hat off to youtube stars (Michelle Phan, Xteener, Frmheadtotoe) who are so natural at what they do. They are not only attractive but exceedingly confident which adds to their appeal. Maybe, hopefully I’ll get better/more comfortable, with more vlogs.

PURE COLOR VIVID SHINE Launching in August 2012
This Fall Estée Lauder and Tom Pecheux dare you to play in a world of bold, luminous and impactful color with new Pure Color Vivid Shine – the latest wave of shades that dazzle eyes, lips and nails with sparkling shine and chromatic color. This modern spectrum of color features new finishes and textures. Pure Color Vivid Shine is a collection of bold shades for women and makeup artists who want to indulge their love of color.
“As a makeup artist, I need vivid color. Vivid Shine is inspired by the models and women I work with in Fashion. I created this collection so every woman could play with color that is vibrant and alive.” -Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder
Accentuate eyes in a range of seductive, stylish shades that deliver maximum color impact and dimension with the newest Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadows. Magnified, multi-faceted, magnificent, these future forward shadows define where innovation and high-style meet with a high-performance formula comprised of advanced technology and texture.
True Vision™ Technology — a crystalline (polymer) laminate that magnifies and amplifies color with a glowing metallic finish envelopes lids with high-intensity pigments in one velvety smooth application and a “tribrid” system of liquid, powder and gel all-in-one, creates exceptional, non-creasing, non-fading color and long-lasting wear that won’t fade. The formula also reaches new heights and dimensions with a bouncy malleable texture, for high-definition color impact that can go from matte to the highest chromatic shine. Accompanied by a specially designed sponge-mitt applicator, these versatile shadows can be worn dry for a sophisticated look, or wet for a bold, full color finish – making them every makeup artists’ dream!
Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadows bring color to life in two weightless, incredibly smooth finishes:
Vivid Shine Finish: In this collection, there are 6 limited edition Vivid Shine shadows that feature a unique blend ofspecially treated glow and metallic pearl duo complex. This luminous finish catches and reflects light, creating the purest levels of multi-dimensional color illumination for unforgettable eyes that glow!
Vivid Shine Finish (Limited Edition) Pure Color Gelée Powder EyeShadow in Ultra Marine is featured in the vlog above.
Cyber Metallic Finish:These 10 shimmering Cyber Metallic shades transform eyes to a hyper-metallic, futuristic look.
Saturated with color, sparkling shine and dimension, lips are the center of attention with new Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick. A breakthrough in lip color never experienced before, these gorgeous lipsticks range is a seductive spectrum of shades from vivid to sublime and are infused with powerful technologies and benefits.
True Vision™ Technology envelopes lips with decadent color, and a sheer, lustrous shine, while Amplified Dimensional Pearl Technology is a unique diamond-like pearl cluster consisting of up to eight different shaped and colored pearls. These pearls fuse together to reflect a multi-hued, multi-faceted spectrum of color for an amplified, sparkling finish on lips. Each shade contains silver and gold sparkle pearls which neutralize lips, making them look beautiful on all skin tones for a faceted, sequined shine that sparkles.
Lips are further enhanced with Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick through exceptional benefits that include:
– A new moisturizing texture saturates lips with sheer, creamy emollients that smooth and condition lips for hours – increasing lip moisturization by 23% in 4 weeks!
– A natural polymer complex creates a pliable, glossy film network, providing lips with a sophisticated, dimensional shine that lasts for hours.
– A high performance wax complex forms a matrix that entraps emollients and pigments in place on lips for lasting coverage and stay-true color in each and every shade.
Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Electric Mauve is featured in the vlog above.

Hahaha it took me so long to reload my vlog… I edited it with imovie on my mac and I was really just playing around so some of the effects don’t make sense, like red curtains in the middle of the vlog. HAHAHA. Although I claim to be introverted but I secretly enjoy seeing myself looking pretty on pictures and videos so don’t hate me or say I’m ugly or anything like that! I’m just kidding… 😛 I did 4 more Christmas cards for my zazzle shop today. I think this week was a little teeny weeny bit more productive than the last, but not very productive still… YPM camp next week! Enjoy the random vlog! Tell me if you like it or not and why and if you’ll watch a 2nd vlog? HAHAHA. Ok bye!
Please wait till the video load before watching! And… I think I want to cut my fringe.
